Notes: This is a remaster of the original DATs. The first master suffered from clicks and pops as well as distortion during space which was present at the mixing board. This remaster should take care of clicks and pops. As for the distortion, there was a particularly nasty overdriven bass sound which almost blew my speakers the first listening. I had to remove around 2 minutes while preserving the flow and feel of the space section. Also to keep the show to four discs I had to edit out the crowd noise between the first four songs of disc one. Finally, the whole show was normalized using Cool Edit Pro 1.2. --Web Ed

Great Show - Despite Bob Weir
Having heard this whole show on CD, I only wish I was there. The acoustic set was nothing short of incredible. It is a testament to this band that not only do they sound EXACTLY like the Dead, but they can do it acoustic too.
However, to give an honest review or critique, I have to say the lowest part of this show was when Bob Weir played. His guitar was set up for 2003, not 1980!!!! His licks were out of place for the era that DSO was trying to recreate.
That said, it was a great sounding show and I am sure the members of DSO and the Audience were totally psyched to see and play with Bobby.

I thought Jerry was singing!
Really an excellent show, despite the fact that a couple songs in the setlist are missing (Missing from Original Posted Setlist:
"Run for The Roses" was originally listed between Dark Hollow & Cassidy; "Greatest Story Ever Told" was originally listed between Alabama Getaway & Friend of The Devil)... At any rate, the addition of Bob Weir & Ron Eaton in the 1st Electric set was excellent with Bob singing his Little Red Rooster, the entire Weather Report Suite (or "Let it Grow" as it is called in the set list) and The Wheel.
